Tecta blocks and panels set new safety standards for modular building systems.
Cork. Like no other tree
The bark of the cork oak has evolved to protect the tree from fire. It chars but wont burn and is highly resistant to rot, termites, vemin and mechanical damage. bark containing high levels of suberin. Over time the cork cambium layer of bark can develop considerable thickness and can be harvested every 9 to 12 years. PROTecta foam cores are derived from polyols refined from plant sources such as soy or linseed oil.
Tecta systems deliver long life, earthquake and typhoon resistant structures at cost that compares with conventional methods... but with a shorter build time.
For the Australian and South Asian markets, the future energy savings need to be balanced against the cost of increasing the thickness of insulation. The consensus is that R5 to R7 is the appropriate level to achieve the best balance of embodied energy and long term energy savings.
COST : INSULATION
The insulation used in TECTA blocks and panels is patented and unique. The polymer beads are coated with a nano mineral coating forming a matrix that will not melt.

PROTecta Insulation compared with other popular types. PROTecta does not suffer from thermal creep and so the PUR values are corrected for aged material that reflects the true performance expected over the life of the building.
